The ice cream truck factored big into my childhood summers. Long afternoons were spent in the backyard with my best friend, keeping our ears tuned for the first faint bars of “Pop Goes the Weasel.” By the time the music was blaring down my street, we had joined the crowd of sweaty kids jumping up and down on the sidewalk, all of us with a dollar clutched in our little fists. My neighborhood now doesn’t have an ice cream truck, and my kids are way too busy to hang out in the yard waiting for one anyway. But I like to recreate a little magic with my favorite summer recipe for pudding pops.
Just take one package of JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding and 2 cups cold milk, beat them with a whisk for 2 minutes, then stir in 1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping.
Spoon mixture into paper or plastic cups, and insert a wooden pop stick or plastic spoon in the center of each cup.
Slip them in the freezer for 4 hours or until firm. Instant summer magic! Click here for the full recipe: JELL-O Creamy Chocolate Pudding Pops
